Where Is God?

Where is God
by Unknown

Angels and demons
break the commandments
It’s dark and gray
Has God gone away?
With purpose and order
a people is murdered
the greatest law broken
Where is God?
A terrible plague
in bright light of day
laments and wailing
in glorious sunshine.
Chaos and shouting
prisoners in rows.
The sky is red
they go to their death.
Bursts of noise
thunder and lightning
a gray blockade
devil masquerade.
The enemy is here
the hour of darkness.
The sky shakes with fright
all is weary
on the heavenly throne
a black flag.
With purpose and order
a people are murdered
the greatest law shattered
Where is God?
The Shekhina glows
chaos in the sky
angels and demons
break the commandments
It’s dark and it’s gray
Has God gone away?

From crying and wailing
too hard to bear
to screaming why –
do we deserve this?
Children and old folks
all together
black crowds
war sacrifices
whole millions
crammed into trains
always departing
for end of the world.
Black uniforms
with guns, bayonets
clubs and whips
swords and rifles
and terrible stench
we’re led to the altar
cold and frozen
Jews without world!
Blood rivers flow
the Angel of Death shouts “it’s good”
the knife slaughters fast
Jews crushed and smashed
This blood and tears
will fill whole seas.
Fire and sword
heaven and earth
walls are aflame
angels wring their hands
loud dying is heard
teeth gritting sounds
why has this happened
such monstrous rage
revenge and hate
blood and war no escape
why the best of us dead
the greatest minds
with horror and woe
Jews alone

Angels and demons
break the commandments
It’s dark and gray
Has God gone away?
With purpose and order
a people is murdered
the greatest law broken
Where is god?
A terrible plague
in bright light of day
laments and wailing
in glorious sunshine.
Chaos and shouting
prisoners in rows.
The sky is red
they go to their death.
Bursts of noise
thunder and lightning
a gray blockade
devil masquerade.
The enemy is here
the hour of darkness.
The sky shakes with fright
all is weary
on the heavenly throne
a black flag.
With purpose and order
a people are murdered
the greatest law shattered
Where is God?
The Shekhina glows
chaos in the sky
angels and demons
break the commandments
It’s dark and it’s gray
Has God gone away?
